Big Walls Gallery (E/F Corridor) presents:
Amanda Greive
Drowning in the Delicate

Artist’s Statement:
My hyper-realistic compositions reference both classical and contemporary symbolism and iconography. While the primary motivation behind my work is to tease out the nuanced emotions embedded within the human condition and to confront isolation and anxiety born of gender-based stereotypes, I also look to comment on the contradiction between creating realistic imagery and portraying emotional rawness, as well as the uncompromised truth in the imagery portrayed versus it’s symbolic ambiguity.

– Amanda Greive
